About the design
The Thun Blyth is equipped with NAABSA design (Not Always Afloat But Safely Aground). Thun’s long experience of building resource efficient, high quality vessels has been used in the design process.
Dwt: 4,250MT , IMO: Type II , LoA: 79.9m, Cubic(98%): 4,800m3, Beam : 15m, Cargo heating : Yes , Coating : Jotun Flexline.
Extra care was taken into maximizing the vessel’s cargo intake and increase in-port performance with the scope to allow further increased cargo lot sizes going into restricted niche ports.
Resource efficiency, new regulations and environmental care have been key elements in the development of the new vessel.
